¿Qué aprendes en este curso?
You will initially be registered for an MPhil award. Promotion to registration to PhD is not automatic, but contingent on the satisfactory outcome of a review process. This normally takes place towards the end of the first year of registration for full-time candidates and towards the end of the second year for part-time candidates. You submit a report to an academic panel and present at the annual research colloquium.
If the outcome is satisfactory, you will be upgraded to a PhD. The programme will conclude with submission of research in the form of a PhD thesis and attendance at aviva voce
examination in front of at least two examiners, at least one of whom will be external to the University.
